Commission: Casey's Team by ShadeofShinon Commission: Casey's Team by ShadeofShinon
A Pokemon team commission for ~nigel-thronberry125. His team: Arcanine - Apollo; Jolteon - Raijin; Braviary - Aether; Pidgeot - Zephyr; Haxorus - Rudra; Lucario - Atlas; Blaziken - Vulcan.

I thorhoughly enjoyed drawing this commission. The team was very awesome and I felt like I had a very good touch to it right from the start. The commissioner originally asked me to choose between Braviary and Pidgeot but I simply had to draw both because a) BIRDS b) both are awesome Pokemon c) I believe in different team sizes.
I really like how this one turned out. I hope you like it, too!

Straight back into business! And yes, this is definitely you in your element. Big birds and flowing-maned canines everywhere. I love the windstorm that dual dose of bird is whipping up! That gale makes this team look formidable as hell. 

You're always great with birds, but damn, the detail on the pidgeot's feathers is simply stunning! It simply blows me away, such a beautiful creature! I'm liking that blaziken too. I like how you portray its head feathers, and the perspective really makes it look imposing. Those big feet look ready to stomp on me like a bug - I'd hate to see what a blaze kick coming from them would do! Arcanine's great as always, sweet haxorus armour, and Casey's looking like a boss standing there, jacket flapping in the wind of his epic force of monsters. That's one cool lucario too. Most of the time I see lucario portrayed as stone-solemn collected heroic types, so I'm enjoying the hunched, hairy, spined savage this team sports. This work is utterly excellent as always, you really know how to make a team shot!

Haha, yeah. For some reason I mostly get commissioners who know to pick their Pokemon in a way that suits me. And I don't mind. :D

I actually streamed this piece, namely the part where I was doing Pidgeot's details, and there was constant joking about the details in the chat. But well, birds and details are some of my favourite things to draw so I really went all out with it.

Thank you very much for your comment!
